I thought it would be a good idea to post an answer to a basic question.
WHAT IS PANCREATIC CANCER?!?! Here’s what I found from The U.S. Library of Medicine
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
The pancreas is a large organ located behind the stomach. It makes and releases enzymes into the intestines that help the body absorb foods, especially fats.
Hormones called insulin and glucagon, which help your body control blood sugar levels, are made in special cells in the pancreas called islet cells. Tumors can also occur in these cells, but they are called islet cell tumors.
The exact cause of pancreatic cancer is unknown. It is more common in:
People with diabetes
People with long-term inflammation of the pancreas (chronic pancreatitis)
Pancreatic cancer is slightly more common in women than in men. The risk increases with age.
A small number of cases are related to genetic syndromes that are passed down through families.
I hope this was helpful.
Know the facts and pass it on😉
